[House:] Kreo – Burn for You

No set of house music would be complete without these two gems here. The first, the essential dance-house track, “Burn For You” by Kreo. First introduced to me through the music video game series Dance Dance Revolution, this song was way ahead of its time (released around 2005) with it’s deep, future-house sounds.

Though a little more pop/mainstream, the simple repeating synths create a sense of calm and a neotopian ‘this must be what elevator music in 2099 will sound like’ kinda vibe.

Next up is a great remix of Kelis’ “Bounce” with Calvin Harris. The “Twibak & Martysounds Edit” gives the song just the right amount of ‘lo-bounce’ while keeping an uptempo vibe. Music like this laid the foundations for today’s future-house. This remix was released at a time where dubstep and generic trap ruled the EDM sphere, a welcome relief from that aural assault on our ears.
